The Selma to Montgomery NHT hosted a Junior Ranger Summer Camp. Activities included learning what a Freedom Song is and how the songs affected the people of the Voting Rights Movement. Kids learned about careers in NPS and Adventures in Camping, created “What Does Freedom Mean to You?” crafts, and wrote their own Freedom Songs by changing the lyrics to a gospel song just as voting rights demonstrators did in the 1960s.
